For the past six years I have presented workshops and worked 1:1 with teachers to help them better organize and manage their classrooms.

I have created an easy-to-read booklet that includes everything you need to create your own Clutter-Free Classroom™. Inside this valuable resource you will find an abundance of tips and ideas and real classroom photos. This is the same guide that I provide my clients and workshop participants with. It is full of information that will save you time and money while making you an organized, efficient teacher.

Initially, I had planned to have it professionally printed as a spiral bound book. However, I've decided that I would rather make it available at a MUCH lower cost to teachers. Instead of having it commercially printed and bound, I have printed/copied it myself, 3 hold punched the pages and put the contents into pocket folders.

This will provide you with a low cost, transportable, resource. You can easily take it to school and back home. You can write in it. You can add to it. You can store notes and clippings in the pockets. It's a great value!

I also encourage you to read my daily blog for teachers: www.littlestlearners.com and welcome you to visit my classroom organization website at (www.clutterfreeclassroom.com)
